How to watch movies on your Android phone?

It's no secret that people love to watch movies. In fact, according to a Nielsen study, 64% of Americans say they regularly watch movies at home.


And with the proliferation of streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Cinema HD and Amazon Prime Video, it's easier than ever to get your movie fix. But what if you're not at home? What if you're on the go and want to watch a movie on your Android phone? Well, lucky for you, there are a few different ways to do just that. In this blog post, we'll show you how to watch movies on your Android phone so that you can enjoy your favorite films no matter where you are.

Download a movie streaming app.

There are a number of different movie streaming apps available for Android, so it's really just a matter of finding one that fits your needs. Some of our favorites include Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and HBO GO. Once you've found an app that you like, simply download it from the Google Play Store and sign up for an account (if necessary).

Rent or purchase digital copies of movies from Google Play Movies TV

If you don't want to sign up for a movie streaming service, another option is to rent or purchase digital copies of movies from Google Play Movies TV. This is a great option if you want to own the movie outright or if you only want to watch it once. Prices for rentals start at $2.99 and go up from there depending on the movie; prices for purchases start at $9.99 and also vary by film.

Use a cable or satellite TV app (if you have an active subscription)

If you have an active cable or satellite TV subscription, there's a good chance that you can access your account through an app on your Android phone. This would allow you to watch live TV or recorded shows anywhere you have an internet connection—including watching movies on your phone when you're on the go. Some of the most popular apps in this category include Xfinity TV GO, DIRECTV NOW, and Spectrum TV Choice.

Mirroring/casting from your computer/laptop

If you have a laptop or computer with a HDMI port, another option is to mirror or cast your screen onto your television using an HDMI cable. This will allow you to watch anything that's playing on your computer—including movies that you've downloaded or are streaming online—on your television. To do this, simply connect an HDMI cable from your computer to your TV, then open the movie file on your computer and press play.

As you can see, there are a number of different ways that you can watch movies on your Android phone—whether you want to stream them from an app, rent or purchase them digitally, or mirror them from your computer/laptop. So next time you're stuck in line at the grocery store or waiting for an appointment, why not que up one of your favorite films? With these methods, it's easy (and enjoyable) to do just that!
